Visited with two 1yr olds, a 3 yr old, and a 15 yr old. Something for everyone. Lots of fun and activities took up about 3 hours of the afternoon.

This museum offers a diverse selection of exhibits and things to do and explore for young kids. The traveling exhibition they had during our visit focused on green energy and recycling was particularly interesting.

My daughter's a bit young but she enjoyed many of the activities available...as did I. Well planned and lots of cool learning activities. Choose your visit wisely as it can get overrun with those little rug rats it's trying to entertain.

It is almost incomprehensible to see how intuitively children can figure out the exhibits. They flock to each new adventure with obvious enjoyment. My 31/2 year old grandson handled 3 hours with no problem and cannot wait to go back.
